A little confession...I hated my hair growing up.
My hair is darker now-more auburn, but growing up it was definitely red and I hated it! I got called "Irish setter" in school and I hated any/all references to anything "red".
Now that I'm older I LOVE my hair. I get asked all the time if I dye it, or what color did I use etc.. and I'm happy to reply-"Its Au' natural."
In ode to all things Irish-have a blessed day!
